Nearly 200,000 homes and businesses in England are at risk of being lost to rising sea levels by the 2050s, a new study has warned. Researchers said the country could face around 14 inches (35cm) of sea level rise compared to historic levels within 30 years and is nearly certain to see close to 3ft (1m) of advancement by the end of the century. It comes a week after the official in charge of Britain's flood protection said some of Britain's seaside towns and villages may have to be abandoned because of rising seas and coastal erosion. The new study also cautioned that it may not be possible to protect some communities,

Another attack of psychological warfare designed to create fear and panic in people and get them to surrender to climate change Electric vehicles and $25/gal gas. All to prevent rising dead levels because icebergs are melting. Put ice cubes in a glass and fill it with water. The water in the glass is the ocean and the ice cubes are ice bergs. What happens when the ice cubes melt? Does the glass overflow? Geeee i wonder why.

The climate is always changing and always has been since eons before humans raised farting cows.. It's always either getting warmer or colder, and, of the two, getting warmer is a hundred times better. Several times more people die every year from cold than from heat. If the Earth warms and CO2 increases, the planet becomes a huge, lush garden.

I really believe articles like this are a concerted effort by the elites and their lapdogs in the media to drive down the value of those shore front properties so they can snatch them up. Then when the sea level doesn't inundate the places they've already got a new hotel or beach front villa. A pox on all of them.

Lake Michigan was at a record high a year ago, NOW is down 26 inches from a year ago. Yes we had erosion however we were in no way in danger of being washed away. When "researchers" say, "could, might, maybe" to me its their own wishful thinking and a way to control us.

More nonsense from the climate cabal. The sea levels have risen about a foot in the last hundred years, at a more or less steady rate, as they've been doing since the end of the last ice age. At least some of the reported "sea level rise" is the result of data manipulation and is not present in the raw satellite data. See Only the alarmist 'climate modeling', which has little in common with reality, shows any sort of significant rise in sea levels.

Over the past 50 years I have heard the same stories of gloom a doom for cuties like Miami, Boston, and NYC. They were all supposed to be coral reefs by now. Sometimes erosion is just erosion. Some land get washed away because that is what nature does. Steps can be taken to stop it, or not. Stop the fear mongering to prove your climate change agenda.

Whenever they warn that the ice caps are melting and will cause the seas to rise, I am amazed at the lack of understanding in this ridiculous claim. The ice they are talking about is floating on the sea. It displaces its own weight in water. If it melts there is no change in water level. Those ice caps routinely shrink and then refreeze. You hear warnings when it is melting, and you might hear crickets when it is growing back.

More baloney. If you aren't essentially under water at spring neap tide now, you will be fine for a few more decades. Daily tidal variation gives decades of warning when you "have built too close to the edge" as I call it. Then periodic oceanic storms give the next "hint". Nothing to do with "climate change" at all. It's weather. A family member purchased a home in the 70s on the south end of the Virginia Beach area. His home then was on one street parallel to the beach, and there were two rows of homes across the street, then another street parallel to the beach, and then the beachfront homes....RIGHT on the water, all homes newly built in the 70s. After about four or five good storms, (25 -30 years) some hurricanes, some nor'easters, the first row of beach homes are gone, the closest road is gone, and about half of the second row of homes are gone. My family member sold his home long ago. Storms regularly wash through there, and you might get away with building "too close to the edge" for 10, or even 30 years or more, because the weather is largely benign. BUT there ARE coastal storms, and houses that can survive long stretches of good weather, cannot survive these storms. The storms WILL come, but not every decade, but they WILL come. Building too close to the edge is stupid. But, here in the USA, since no insurance company is stupid enough to ensure these guaranteed losses, the US government will "insure" them. This just means that the government (our idiot Congresscritters) agrees to steal money from folks in Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado and all the other states to pay rich folks for their stupidly sited homes on the beaches. We really are stupid, as a country, paying for the homes of rich folks who build them where they should never have been built, "too close to the edge", where it is not a matter of "if", just "when" the home will be destroyed by a storm. I wonder if the Brits are as stupid?

One of the co-hosts of CBS Mornings on Wednesday wanted you to find the bright side, suggesting that such skyrocketing costs could be the “silver lining” that pushes us off oil. Talking to Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm, the host generally seemed perplexed by the high costs. Granholm offered her own version of the upside of staggering gasoline costs, reminding, “We want to move to clean energy, and that's why the President and the bipartisan infrastructure law that was signed invested significant amount of money to move in that direction.”

John Kerry, who is the U.S. special presidential envoy for climate, stated at a recent event at the University of Southern California that the country does not need to put more effort into drilling for oil and gas as energy costs continue to rise. The most obvious sign of the increase in energy costs has been at gas stations, where the national average now stands at $5.01 per gallon, but utility bills are also expected to increase this summer. Republicans in Congress have called for more domestic production to increase the supply of oil in order to reduce the cost.

Nearly 200,000 homes and businesses in England are at risk of being lost to rising sea levels by the 2050s, a new study has warned. Researchers said the country could face around 14 inches (35cm) of sea level rise compared to historic levels within 30 years and is nearly certain to see close to 3ft (1m) of advancement by the end of the century. It comes a week after the official in charge of Britain's flood protection said some of Britain's seaside towns and villages may have to be abandoned because of rising seas and coastal erosion.

President Biden's Energy Department has proposed a new rule that would require homeowners looking to buy a new furnace to install a 95 percent energy-efficient one within the next seven years.

It would require that all gas-burning furnaces on the market to be switched over by 2029.(Snip)The Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that the new furnaces will save households about $60 per year, a number that totals $30.3 billion over the next 30 years.
